The **Weight of a Cylinder** calculator computes the weight (mass) of a cylinder based on the radius of the base of the cylinder (r), the height of the cylinder (h), and the density of the material (mD).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**r**) Radius of the base - (
**h**) Height - (
**mD**) Mean Density of material

**Weight of Cylinder (W):** The weight / mass is returned in kilograms. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The weight or mass of a right circular cylinder formula computes the mass of a right cylinder as a function of the mean density (mD) of the composition and the volume calculated using the radius (r) of the base and the height (h). The default results will be in kilograms but can be converted to any of the system provided units.

Key Words: geometry - euclidean - right circular cylinder volume

The formula to compute the volume of the geometric shape based on the input parameters. Using the volume of a cylinder, the formula for mass from volume and density:

where:

- V is the volume
- mD is the mean density.

The mean density(mD) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking** HERE **(e.g. the mD of water is 1,000 kg/m^{3}).
